"Bar Month" at OnMilwaukee.com is back for another round! The whole month of February, we're serving up intoxicatingly fun bars and club articles -- including guides, bartender profiles, drink recipes and even a little Brew City bar history. Cheers!
Each week during our bar month extravaganza, we check local watering holes, clubs, lounges, liquor stores and grocery stores to give you a comparison on the cost of your favorite libations.
Enjoying a drink isn't just limited to your living room or the neighborhood bar. Milwaukee is a sports town, and the city's three main athletic venues -- the Bradley Center, Miller Park and the U.S. Cellular Arena -- offer many brands of beer and even mixed drinks for those with a slightly more cultured palate.
For those not into sports, there is a growing number of movie theaters offering beer, wine and liquor.
This week, OnMilwaukee.com compares the cost of a frosty, cold beer at local sporting venues, concert halls and movie houses.
